Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 53W BX80646G3258 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought it in a combo with a MSI Z97 PC Mate. It was a bargain.

Cons: Disappointed since I can't get it to overclock. It seems to only want to work in stock. I've done tons of research. I was running i3 540 decided I want to move myself into a position to buy a more expensive i3/i5/i7 later. Somewhat regretting it now. Some games just stutter and don't run quite as well. I did a clean install of my OS afterwards. Tried updating my Bios to latest.

Other Thoughts: Hoping I can get this thing to overclock soon.

4 out of 5 eggs Good Motherboard. Unable to Overclock. 04/27/2015

This review is from: MSI Z97 PC Mate LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It was a great deal. Bought this combo with a G3258 processor. Performance is pretty good. The motherboard has great options on it. I really liked the extra SATA ports, the USB 3.0. I run an SSD and my WEI score jumped off the charts in comparison to my old board.

Cons: So far I'm not able to overclock my G3258. I don't know if this a problem with the board, the processor or both. I've researched the overclocking of this chip and the information is there but not helpful. The MSI website even implies there is a special overclocking bios? So is the bios different from the bios on the Motherboard home page? The information just seems messy to me. I haven't tried the overclocking BIOS that I found on the Overclocking web page. I'm kind of nervous about loading it. I tried using the overclock button and manually in the bios. Just gives me a failure and reverts me back. Even increasing the multiplier by 1x fails.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy with the board but I'm pretty sure I'm going to probably part ways with the CPU in favor of an i3 or i5 before year end.

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: I bought it as a go between drive to shuffle things from a larger drive to a smaller drive and then from that smaller drive to the larger drive. Copy times were acceptable and done mostly while I was away from the PC. Right now its serving as a backup drive to mirror folders of important documents, photos, music, videos etc..

Cons: It wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: Amazingly fast shipping. Had it in 2 days. Wish I had something more helpful to say about the drive. But right now its just serving a purpose of a mirror type of thing.
